#153 Your own Maze by Picolo-kun #153 Your own Maze by Picolo-kun
“You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you'll escape one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.” - John Green.

Reading John Green's Looking for Alaska when this doodle came to mind.The girl's horns mean that she's the monster lurking inside her maze. As it is with everyone of us. We're are our worst enemies.

 Had to finish it a bit lazier to study :/ *regrets*

I think 'Looking for Alaska' is my favorite John Green so far, though I haven't read 'The Fault in Our Stars' yet as popular as it is.  Great depiction and doodle.

i don't think we are our worst enemies. Many people think that, because they have an inner conflict with themselves and their needs that are not acceptet or in contradictory to society, people we think we love, school, workplace...
the problem with John G. words is that some people may interpret them as a reason to give up your doubts and get conform with things that you think are "important" and "reasonable" even of you inner voice says no (another way would be harder but it would bring you to your true self).

True indeed. We are our worst enemies but we can turn that Labyrinth into a Gateway back if we choose to do so. Hard to find Little Cat today! :love:
